Happy Holiday's to you,

Yeah bro, I'm waiting on a bottle myself...who knows, maybe we're onto something w/ this stuff!

In addition, I've came across an excellent product, for those (such as myself) w/ Britex interior'd cars, called Repel Well...apply it, then say 'bye-bye' to those unsightly, re-occurring water spots.
Repel Well Revolutionary Fabric Protection Spray

PS
I see that you're in Metro DC area: today's weather (70+) will be perfect for a nice, spirited drive to anywhere...if you're so inclined, send me a PM

Can you post any larger pictures - really hard to see anything in the small sized photos.

Thank you.

Results look pretty good, I may have to add this product to my arsenal.

Anyone else have before and after pics?

Pulled the air vents out of the spyder to try this product. And I'm not impressed. On these parts, it removed the stickyness, but left a slimy, tacky feeling. So to me it seems that the sticky feeling is not removed.
The tacky feeling I'm sure will attract dust, and using the vents clearly leaves fingerprints.

The attached is after three treatments, letting it sit overnight and pressing my thumb.

Don't think this a good solution for the hard plastic parts

Why

Why does Maserati use this material? Surely they are aware of the sticky problem!

Worst part is they kept using it year after year both in Ferrari and Fiat products as well.

It's a euro thing. Same problem with some early Porsche's.

Really are "sticky no more"

I tried the "Sticky No More" $25 sample, and it didn't really do much but loosen some of the worst buildup of sticky stuff. The parts still looked terrible. I then tried several other things before I finally got out a can of acetone and a soft toothbrush. Applying a little acetone and some elbow grease took all the "sticky" off of the grill in the center of the dash just below the windshield and both the right and left A/C vents. It really was not too hard to do, although I did take them off the car and take them apart. The only downside is that the two side vents are now shiny plastic instead of the matte finish they are supposed to be, but I plan to paint them when I have a Saturday afternoon free. Al least there is no longer "lumps" of sticky crap all over them and they don't attract dirt and grime like they did when they were "sticky". Fortunately, none of my buttons with labels on them have the problem. I don't know what you could do for those, as I think acetone will also take the labeling off the buttons. This is such a common problem that I think Maserati should have offered to repair or replace them for owners of these "high end" cars.

What should Fiat do for owners of their other marques that also suffer the same issue? Ferrari-Maserati get replacements and Alfa, Lanica & Fiat have to pay out of pocket?
